England were disappointed with the state of the pitch for their 2-0 friendly defeat in Spain.
Santi Cazorla and Mario Gaspar struck two second-half goals for the hosts. England skipper Wayne Rooney scuffed a shot onto the crossbar late on.
Manchester United will be left sweating on a potential injury to Michael Carrick after he was stretchered off.
At the final whistle, Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart: “It’s strange that we played on a Third Division pitch.
“I’m not making excuses and I might be talking rubbish but I am upset.
“We have played well for a long time and it’s difficult when we lose. We need to perform better against France.”
Former England fullback Danny Mills was disappointed by the lack of ambition from Roy Hodgson’s team.
“Spain have been the better side, they have been sharper and quicker. The home side have looked more threatening and they are technically superior. It was a great opportunity for England but ended up with a safe, no risk performance.”
